Are you talking about the one in "the first pipe installed"?
If so, I think that is just a reflection of some clean copper. BUT that is another pipe I would like to redo.

Lol. I could still do a fill port from the res through the top. Speaking of which, the cover will need major work yet if I ever want to run it with the cover on. It is still in stock form and needs larger openings with some acrylic windows.

It passed a 2day leak test. mostly. There is a slow drip that forms at the res top where the 4way and the rad to res meet. Obviously this needs to be corrected but is not a real threat. In the 2 days it ran, it only formed a water drop at the joint but never dropped.

The real scare was when I tried to power everything up with my GS800 and it powered up but no video. swap the 4 PCI-E connections... no go. Use my HDMI-DVI.... no go.. ***?!!? I started panicking. Connected the CX430 to the motherboard and the GS800 to the GPU.. BOOM VIDEO and we are go!!

So far so good. Temps while doing this. Oh, and only running 1 140MM fan.

Hmm. Debating on leaving the CX430 as the powerhouse.

Been running the GS800 to the GPU and the CX430 on the rest of the system.

They are both plugged into the same kill a watt meter. When gaming, BF4 or CSGO at max settings, I'm only running 280-300W max.

Another temp update (3x 140mm fans running through mobo) ALL TEMPS IN Celcius.
Overnight Lows
Core0- 20
Core1- 18
Core2- 20
Core3- 17
GPU- 34

Idle (playing youtube and typing this up)
Core0- 27-30
Core1- 26-33
Core2- 25-28
Core3- 22-26
GPU- 37

Max (playing BF4)
Core0- 52
Core1- 49
Core2- 50
Core3- 55
GPU- 41

Update-
Doing Furmark gpu and cpu test. I haven't seen over 361W @ 66C max on CPU and 45C on GPU

I think I am going to try the 430 running the whole system.

I'll make a Y cable for the 6pin.
Depending on space, I may have to open the PSU up again and reroute the cables out the side.
My only concern at the moment is if there is enough room with the pump and psu right next to each other.

While playing Rome Total War 2 (default settings). I still didn't break 360W per the meter.

Update!

I was able to get the 2x 6pin wired up to the cx430. While typing this, I am at 80w. Still need to load test to see if i'm still around 360w.

Had to remove the 3rd fan but was able to sneak the cx430 back in BARELY. I will have to figure out how to make everything fit though. The psu is right up on the case edge and doesn't let me use even the 90deg power cable.

Ran valley benchmark on ultra 1080p.
min 50% load on all cpu cores
99% gpu load
MAX PSU load I was able to see- 263W
